     Hi - wonderful sharing, thank you. "Dropping out" could remind us to not immediately/mindlessly react to what we perceive as real, that could be a person we think we know, an emotion we are experiencing, a static view. An impulse we feel very strongly about and want to act on can be unwise action. "Dropping back" I think is more the middle path - to 'drop out' seems to imply completley - to withdraw all the way when we know that this is delusional - interconnectiveness/interbeing includes us and we are needed and need to be connected but connected to wisdom. Droppingout like the Buddha means going deeper - afterall he shared and so is present with us today, 2500plus years later.
